IMACD – Installations, Moves, Adds, Changes & Disposals
As technology specialists, we understand that business trading environments change all the time. From smaller scale refits to large, multi-store openings, we have over two decades’ experience in managing IT infrastructure projects and IMAC services. Each IMAC activity is tailored precisely to our customer’s requirements and delivered to exacting project timeframes and costs.
Our team of PRINCE2-qualified project managers are equipped to support the strictest of timelines for your project, whether that’s opening a single pop-up, or implementing a widespread major technology transformation across your estate. Our IMAC projects are delivered by using our tried and tested methodology in a way that’s suited to your individual business requirements, which is why we often complete projects out-of-hours.
